ISRAEL IN PROPHECY :
Has God abandoned Israel :
“This is what the Lord says, He who appoints the sun to shine by day, who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar-the Lord Almighty is His name : “Only if these decrees vanish from my sight ” declares the Lord, “will the descendants of Israel ever cease to be a nation before me ‘ ”
Jeremiah 31v35 NIV.
“Thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I, even I, will search for my sheep and bring them out,,,,
And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel….AND THEY SHALL NO MORE BE A PREY TO THE HEATHEN……but they shall dwell safely, AND NONE SHALL MAKE THEM AFRAID…….
Thus shall they know that I the Lord am with them, and that they, even the house of Israel , are my people, saith the Lord God. ”
Ezekiel 34 v 11, 13, 28 , 30. KJ
Though I make a full end of all nations wither I have scattered thee : yet I will not make a full end of thee; BUT I WILL CORRECT THEE…..and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
Jeremiah 30 v 11. KJV.
“Fear not, for I am with thee ; I will bring thy seed from the east and gather thee from the west ; I will say to the north, Give(them) up, and to the south ,Keep not back : bring my sons from afar , and my daughters from the end of the earth”
Isaiah 43 v 5,6. KJV
“Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth……
Hear the word of the Lord ye nations….He that has scattered Israel will gather and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock ”
Jeremiah 31 v 8, 10. NKJ.
“And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel…..and cities shall inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded……and I will…..DO BETTER UNTO YOU than at your beginnings ; and ye shall know that I am the Lord “.
Ezekiel 36 v 10, 11. NKJ-my emphasis.
“And I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel, and they shall build the waste cities and inhabit them…..And I will plant them upon their land, AND THEY SHALL NO MORE BE PULLED UP OUT THEiR LAND, which I have given them, saith the Lord thy God.
Amos 9 v 14 , 15. NKJ-my emphasis.
“Behold,I will make Jerusalem a CUP OF TREMBLING unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege, both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
And in that day I will make Jerusalem A BURDENSOME STONE for all people : ALL that burden themselves with it shall be CUT IN PIECES, though ALL the people of the earth be gathered TOGETHER against it …
In that day I will make the governors of Judah like an HEARTH OF FIRE among the wood, and like a TORCH OF FIRE in a sheaf, and they shall DEVOUR all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left……THE LORD shall defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem….he that is FEEBLE among them at that day shall be as DAVID……I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
Zechariah 12 v 2,3,6,8,9. NKJ -my emphasis.
“In the day of Israel’s restoration she shall be owned as the wife of Jehovah.
It is important to notice the difference between her position and that of the Bride of the Lamb(Rev 19 and 21).
The one, the wife, is earthly ; the other, the Bride, is heavenly
Israel is not called a bride, because she is a restored wife,who had wandered from her husband. The other is presented as the Bride for the first time at the marriage-supper of the Lamb in heaven following the Rapture.
In the Millennium, the Lamb and His heavenly Bride will REIGN over all redeemed creation.
While on the earth, the restored wife of Jehovah will have her place in the land of Israel.
The New Jerusalem above is the capital city of the Bride, the restored Jerusalem on earth will be the capital city of the wife.”
H. Ironside, Notes on the Minor Prophets.
Another interpretation of Mat 21:43 that some dispensationalists hold to…
The future nation that Jesus is referring to is when Israel one day says “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord”
Acts 1:6 Now those who had gathered together began to ask Jesus, “Lord, is this the time when you will restore the kingdom to Israel?”
The Kingdom one day will be restored to Israel when Messiah returns. He will not return until Israel asks Him to. The kingdom will was taken from that generation of Israel because there was not the desired fruit (cursing of the fig tree).
There will be a future generation in Israel that turns to their Messiah.
Could this be the kingdom Jesus is referring to that will produce the fruits of it?
Just another possibility held by some teachers I respect…
the secret plan to the church Colossians 1:25 the only hope for the gentiles is Christ in our hearts. There was not a replacement plan at all! only a salvation plan to save the whole world. Christ completes the mission of the Jewish people to save the world, and it is being finished right now.
Colossians 2:7 let our roots grow down into him and draw up nourishment.
We can not take out the root, we must grow in truth and not replace the root. We are to draw our nourishment from Yeshua- he is the root- the Jewish people are the root- this is the secret plan said plainly in Colossians.
Hello Dr. Brown, I was wondering if you could explain to me who is to reign in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ, will it be Israel or the Church. I see clearly in scripture that the individuals who are in the church are to rule, but at the same time in the Old Testament we see that the saved individuals of Israel will rule the nations. How can I reconcile this apart from seeing it as God having one people and not two people. Winch one rules, or which one has priority, Israel or the Church. thank you so much.
